Risk Factors of Gallbladder Disease

Some of the risks factors for developing gallbladder disease may include:

  • Pregnancy 
  • Age older than 40
  • Female gender
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Underlying diseases such as diabetes, sickle cell disease, Crohn’s disease, metabolic syndrome, and cirrhosis)
  • Medications that have estrogens like hormone replacement therapy or oral contraceptives

  • Obesity 

Obesity and Gallbladder Disease

As obesity is one of the factors in developing gallbladder disease, it is recommended to practice lifestyle changes through diet. 

Due to obesity, all forms of gallbladder disease and gallbladder function impairment will be more likely to develop. The gallbladder can be inflamed due to Cholecystitis, known as gallstones, or cancerous due to gallbladder polyps and gallbladder cancer. The gallbladder stores and concentrates the bile produced in the liver and released into the small intestine when fat-rich foods are consumed. For this reason, diet is recommended when you have gallbladder disease. 

Using HCG Diet 

HCG Diet is a pro-hormone that encourages the body to produce more hormones. Weight gain is usually linked to hormone imbalances, whether it’s your menopause, thyroid, or andropause. This hormone can help reverse the effects of these imbalances. HCG is a hormone that the body naturally produces. HCG changes the body’s metabolism and causes abnormal fat to be burned for energy. 

There are numerous additional benefits when you start the HCG diet. For example:

  • Rheumatic pains can lessen within a few days of an HCG treatment and this allows patients to interrupt prolonged cortisone treatment. 
  • High cholesterol has also been known to decrease with the introduction of the HCG hormone. Wherein, it helps to lower overall blood pressure. 
  • The use of HCG has been proven to help patients with gout pain, even if levels of blood uric acid are increasing during treatment.
